74 MT250 Problem

I have an 74 MT250 with starting problems. I have looked at all things
that should be look at such as, ignition, fuel (new carb), and timing.
Has a hot spark, I pulled the exhaust off so see if it has a fuel/air
mix spewing. And yes it does, nice vapor shooting out of the manifold.
The points are adjusted to spec and the timinng is as well.

Didn't find any head gasket leaks, did a compression check and it shot
up to 140lbs after a couple of kicks.

But just won't start. Do you have any other things I need to check that
I may have missed?
